February 7, 2012 our lives were changed forever when Abigail Adesuwa Mauritz came into this world after 15 hours of labor and 4 long, hard and exhausting hours of pushing. She was worth every bit of it!
|Love at first sight|
|She's 50% mama's girlie girl and 50% daddy's tomboy. Here her girlie side meets big bows and tutus!|
|The joy of a first time mom. I savored every moment of my maternity leave with my sweet baby girl.|
February 7, 2013 our princess turned 1! We had a first birthday photo shoot in our home in Durham by Red Bridge Photography and celebrated by having dinner and games at the local Chuck E Cheese with just the three of us. The next week we flew to Houston, Texas where Abby had not one but two big birthday bashes. One party was at the Little Gym of Katy with all my mommy friends and their little ones and the other party was at Grandma and Grandpa Ohen's house where Abby was showered with love by all her "hometown" friends, family and well wishers!
|The first of many frilly birthday tutus. I was born to be a girl mama!|
|Have you ever seen such beauty?!?!|
|I miss her chunky baby rolls. She looked so darling in her lavender petti romper and pearls.|
My how time flies because today Abigail Adesuwa is 2 years old! I've been so emotional all week reflecting on these past two years as a family of three. She has truly brought so much joy to our lives. Lately our house has been filled with much laughter thanks to all of Abigail's funny toddler antics. I don't think Jonathon and I have ever laughed so much in our lives! Yesterday we went to JCPenney to have her two year old portraits done and then tomorrow Abigail and her twinie Mr. IEK will have a joint cowgirl/cowboy birthday party at The Little Gym with all their friends from preschool and church.
|The cutest little cowgirl ever trying on her birthday party outfit complete with a pink and brown tutu!|
|I love this precious girl with every fiber of my being.|
|I plan on getting this pose every year! I got one from last year at JCP with "1" and this year I followed up with "2"! The photographer was not happy with me when I used my cell phone to take this pic. Ooops!|
